Work of Art and ink play

Posted by on May 23, 2017 in Painters Palette | 2 comments

Over the weekend I get some time to create with the new InColors.  Limon Lime Twist is quickly becoming a favorite! As is Tranquil Tide.  Once in a while a new ink pad will have to much ink on the surface.  I will use a Princeton mini Catalyst to remove some of the extra ink.  You could also use a bone folder or a spatula.  The fun thing about using a catalys is that you can then slather the ink onto paper to make a cool background.

Painters Pallet stamp set is super fun!!!  And pairs so well with this type of abstract background.  

Painters Pallet Stamp Set

I really have enjoyed using the sentaments in this set!!! They are so fun and fresh… I love the splashes of paint and the little splatter dots….

The backgrounds are quick and simple…just spread ink around on the shimmery white card stock.  I used Tranquil Tide, Limon Lime Twist, and Bermuda Bay.  After spreading the ink around I added splatter dots in Flirty Flamingo. 

  • The edges of the background layer are embedded with silver embossing powder.  To do this, just run the edges of your paper across your versa mark ink pad.  Then add embossing powder and heat set it.  Do this at least twice…
  • The black background frames the card and makes the sentiment pop! 

This technique works wonderfully on envelopes as well.  How fun is that!!!   

The secone card shows a easy way to step up this technique!   

  • By adding a square with the sentament it makes the card have depth.  
  • The paint swatch stamp makes the sentament square and the background mesh 
  • It is hard to see in the pictures. But, the shimmery white paper really adds a lot of shine to the background

These cards were fun and easy to make.  They remind me of abstract art.  And the Painters Pallet Stamp Set has just the right extra touches to make a very special one of a kind card.

InKing Royalty blog hop -Sneak Peek 

Posted by on May 17, 2017 in copper trim, InKing Royalty Blog Hop, Lovely Friends, Lovely Laurel, Lovely Words, Thinlits 2017 | 10 comments

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s May Blog Hop!  Today’s Blog Hop is filled with projects that offer you a sneak peek at new items in Stampin’ Up!’s 2017 Annual Catalog.  We are so excited about the June 1 release of this new catalog  – it’s AMAZING – and we are excited to share our sneak peek creations with you today.  After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

I happy to be sharing with you the today the Lovely Laurels dies and the Lovely friends Stamp Set.  The Lovely Laurels thinlet dies are quite unique.  They remind me of Roman times. The banner in the dies is quite lovely!!! I particularly like how you can put two together to make one big banner.  These dies were a must have for me!! 

These dies pair perfectly with the Lovely Friends Stamp Set.  This set is full of great sentaments and a beautiful font.  

I paired these with the New InColor Berry Burst, Oh My Stars Texture Impressions Embossing Folder, Lovely Words thinlits and Copper Trim.

Two very similar cards.  I love how you can make a few changes to a card and makes something all new. 

  • The laurels were die cut from thick whisper white.
  • I pressed the versa mark ink pad against the die cut. Then heat embossed it with copper embossing powder.  I did this twice
  • The friend dies is done the same way
  • The laurel and the banner is only glued down in certian areas.  This allowed for lift and texture.

  • The laurel was die cut in the New Berry Burst InColor.
  • Using one of my favorite (new to metechniques), I stamped one of the texture stampes (timeless texture stamp set)  in versa mark and then heat embossed it with copper embossing powder
  • Using fast fuse to glue the laurel down to the paper.
  • Stampin’ dementials under the banner to add depth.

Blog hop days make me so happy! I love seeing what all the Royals are creating.  I’m so lucky to be apart of such a uber talented group.
